Default Difference between BP and BPD

Hi,
I've been diagnosed with Bipolar 2 and I notice I also have some of the symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder. The symptoms almost seem to go hand in hand. What would you say is the main symptoms that qualifies it as BPD and not Bipolar?

Very interesting information. I am definitely a very emotional reactionary person. My reactions to situations are out of the norm. Especially anger, irritability and depression. I've been told by a friend that I overreact to things that happen in my life. And I dwell on them and stay in that emotion for a long time. I don't let things go and it strongly affects my emotions. I will talk to my Pdoc when I see her in a week.

Extremely rapid mood cycling, like moods that last minutes to hours and then a complete shift to another mood. It makes me feel like my moods are smashing around or ricocheting around in my head.
